Kitty's Amazing Homestyle Mayonnaise! Chicken Mayo Recipe

Update: Be sure to check out my Homestyle Salad, made with Knorr Homestyle Stock. It's one of my favorite recipes!

You've probably seen Knorr Homestyle Stock at the grocery store and thought it's no different from any other stock or even those little bouillon cubes. It can actually make things no other stock can.

See the yumminess below?

Chicken Mayo - oooh, yumminess.

Chicken Mayo Recipe

Today, I have a recipe for you that is unlike any other you have ever tried. I owe it all to a tiny tub of concentrated chicken stock.

Knorr chicken stock

My recipe breakthrough came last Tuesday. I had the day off from work and was faced with a long list of things to get done: nap, blog, watch TV, nap some more, read magazines, etc. It's a rough, child-free life!

I read a blog post about an attempted home robbery and began to comment about the time I lived alone and an irate intruder tried to break down my front door. Just thinking about it makes me want to double check all our locks. Because the universe has a cruel sense of humor, as I wrapped up my scary story, the doorbell rang, sending my dogs into a frenzy and me about a foot off the ground!

I couldn't stay mad at the delivery driver though. He had brought me a package of Knorr Homestyle Stock! Big deal, you think? Don't underestimate just how awesome this product is. Behold:

Homestyle stock vs canned
This one 4.66 ounce package of Knorr Concentrated Chicken Stock holds the equivalent of 7 cans of broth! That's just crazy.

(And, yes, 2 of the cans in the photo are actually diced tomatoes, you overly-observant reader. I have a large kitchen, not to mention a tendency to get carried away at the grocery store, but even I don't have enough space for 7 cans of chicken stock!)

Included in my package were details on how to enter a recipe contest from BlogHer and Knorr using the new Homestyle Stock. The prize? A trip to the 2011 BlogHer conference in San Diego! People, I need to win this. I'm much too cheap frugal to pay my own way to California. Winning this would be such an amazing honor and it's all I've been able to think about since the concentrated chicken stock arrived. I dream in chicken.

(Update: I didn't win and I'm honestly a little miffed by it. The majority of points were for creativity and the winning recipe was...chicken noodle soup. Like, the very first thing that probably comes to mind for anyone when they think of chicken stock. Are you kidding me?)

I scrapped my lazy Tuesday plans and thought about how to create the best darn Knorr Homestyle Stock recipe anyone has ever seen. It had to be something that none of the competition would come up with. A chicken pot pie? Big whoop! I needed something prize-worthy.

Reading through the contest details, I learned that Knorr Homestyle Stock tastes like authentic, made-from-scratch chicken stock. It contains no added MSG and no hydrogenated oil. Each tub of concentrated stock can be diluted to create 3.5 cups of broth.

Bingo!

I decided to create Homestyle Mayonnaise, which would be impossible to make without concentrated stock. After all, if you added three and a half cups of chicken stock to your homemade mayonnaise, you'd have soup!

Chicken mayo ingredients
Don't be scared - making chicken mayo is super easy.

How to make mayo
All you need is a handy dandy food processor.
(Or a blender, if you're deprived of fancy kitchen gadgets, you poor dear.)

Homemade mayonnaise isn't runny
"But Kitty," you think. "I've heard that homemade mayonnaise always turns out runny."
Nonsense.

All the top chefs create their own mayonnaise. And if you're fearful of a little raw egg (Sexy Nerd and I are shameless raw cookie dough eaters), feel free to make this mayonnaise using pasteurized eggs.

Chicken Mayo Recipe
(Recipe Yield: 1 1/4 cups)(Total Time: 7 minutes + 1 hour to chill)
  • 1 tub of Knorr Homestyle Stock (chicken flavor)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 egg yolk (I always save the white to create meringue cookies later. Try as I might, I couldn't think of a good concentrated chicken stock meringue cookie recipe!)
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice (fresh is best but from concentrate works too)
  • 1 C olive oil
  • 4 sprigs of parsley, finely minced (approximately 1/8 C)
  • 1/4 tsp sugar
  • 1/4 tsp dried dill
  • 1 Tbsp dehydrated onion
Easy Peasy Chicken Mayo Recipe Instructions
  1. In your food processor (or blender), combine the first 5 ingredients.
  2. With the food processor turned on, very slowly pour in the olive oil. The mixture should thicken. You really can't overblend this - I usually let my food processor run another 3 minutes after the olive oil has been incorporated.
  3. Add the remaining 4 ingredients and blend an additional 30 seconds.
  4. For best results, let your yummy Homestyle Mayonnaise mellow in the fridge for at least an hour before enjoying.
Homestyle Mayo
Ta da! Easier than you expected, right? But there's probably a question you're asking yourself. "Now that I have all this chicken-flavored mayonnaise, what do I do with it?"

Well, Homestyle Mayonnaise would certainly perk up a boring chicken salad. I've made the recipe 3 times since Tuesday, resulting in almost 4 cups of mayonnaise - I've tried this on everything. Of course, there are all the usual mayo uses:

Secret ingredient for the best sandwiches
Chicken Mayo gives a savory boost to an otherwise dull sandwich.

The deviled egg recipe you haven't tried
Chicken Mayo creates deviled eggs unlike any other.

Chicken mayo rolls
 Chicken Mayo creates surprisingly good rolls.
(Google "Mayonnaise Rolls". Did you know such a wacky food existed? Now you can make them slightly wackier with a hint of chicken!)

    How to Move a Mattress

    Chemical Peel Before & After

    This article has been updated! My new chemical peel post, which includes pricing, Jessner peel before and after photos, product recommendations, and a helpful timeline for scheduling your treatments, is at the bottom. My original Jessner peel post (one of the most popular on my site of all time) is at the beginning. Original Chemical Peel Article Considering a chemical peel? I recently underwent my first Jessner peel and thought I'd share my results, post a Jessner peel review, and answer some frequently asked chemical peel questions. (I'm guessing that "Does a chemical peel hurt?" is a biggie!) I'd been planning to order an over-the-counter peel when we were in Iceland , but my computer led me a different direction.

    Hello Fresh Complaints

    Hello, my bloggy friends. I have a HelloFresh complaint and believe they are pulling a scam. Yours truly came *this close* to falling for it.  Maybe scam is too harsh of a word. Sneaky? You can decide for yourself. The fact that there are so many Hello Fresh complaints online does seem suspicious. My main complaint about Hello Fresh has to do with their promotional rate, which seems like it is set up to be intentionally misleading (more on this below). Despite so many people complaining about being charged more than they thought they'd agreed to, Hello Fresh maintains this as part of their business model and continues to mislead. So it's intentional, right? I do not recommend Hello Fresh. For starters, the service is just ingredients-by-mail with recipes, not meals. You can buy your own ingredients for much less, especially now that most grocery stores conveniently offer pickup and delivery. Excellent recipes are easy to find.  Click here for a list of top-rated, reader-favorit

    Window Seat Idea - Dream Home Inspiration of the Day

    3 Minute Toaster/Convection Oven Smores

Well then, sit back and enjoy the ooey-gooey marshmallowy photos.

    Anonymous Flower Delivery

    Anonymous Flower Delivery Sexy Nerd and I came home from a day of running errands on Saturday to discover an odd message on my phone. It was a girl from a flower shop calling to confirm my address for a delivery.  I called and said there must be a mistake, as I wasn't expecting any flowers, to which she pointed out that people don't usually expect flowers. Oh, of course.  As nice as it would be to have someone send me flowers, it seemed unlikely. Sure enough, she was unable to find any orders for me when I gave my name. She did have a Danielle though, and asked if there might be a different last name. I told her my maiden name. There really were flowers waiting for me!  She confirmed the delivery address - the rental house Sexy Nerd and I lived in 3 years ago. I updated my address and ended the call, anxiously waiting to see who would send me flowers. Who sent me flowers from FTD? My mysterious stalker has beautiful taste! Strange? I had no idea how str

    Baby Taped to Wall (But Why?!)

    I could totally see Sexy Nerd doing this if we had a baby. Honestly though, I would probably be cheering him on. Also, I've read online that some folks are outraged by this photo, thinking the baby is being abused. To me though, the baby looks well supported, as if it is in a bouncy chair, and none of the duct tape is touching bare skin. I honestly think this was just intended to be a funny photo. It's not like the parents taped their baby to the wall so they could go out drinking and partying in a cocaine-fueled hysteria. I doubt anyone on cocaine could even achieve this. This photo is from 2010, maybe earlier. Wouldn't it be great to interview this older child one day? It's time to get on that, People Magazine. The internet wants to know what happened to the duct tape baby! Baby Taped to Wall Poor ducky. Enjoy this post?
